Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Orient & Dance Theater is always trying to improve and to give better conditions to our students. We have high ambitions and we and we want to offer the best we can. Not only for our current pupils, but to the entire community of Ramallah/Al-Bireh. This means, that we sometimes need external help and funds to complete our projects.

We are looking for a volunteer with great skills and experience in project writing for grants. He or she should also have fluency in both written and spoken English. Fundraising skills are a plus.

The working hours would be ca. 6 hours in a day with weekends off but everything can be talked through.

We would prefer a volunteer who would be able to come and stay for a longer period ( at least 3 months) to really become a part of our team. We want you to become a part of our big family here!

DELIVERABLES

By the end of the volunteering period we expect to have successfully finalized at least one project towards our goal of better teaching/learning conditions.

 

Great for people with grant writing skills!

We Provide These Local Benefits


ACCOMMODATION

We offer accommodation in a room in a guesthouse. Wi-fi is provided and a  toilet, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen to be shared with others who are living there. We also have a big yard and have cats, both in the guesthouse and the theater, so loving animals is definitely a must. Also, some of us smoke, but we do so always with respect to others and outside. 

Because we are renting the guest house, we cannot provide it free of charge. So the Experteer can stay in our guesthouse for a monthly contribution of 200 EUR per month or we will assist you in finding an alternative accommodation. 

Regarding food- we share some meals sometimes in the guesthouse or in the theater but other than that the buying of food is personal for everyone. Of course, we share everything we have in the fridge but we expect everyone to make their contribution towards what we have there. Essentially, the Experteer is also expected to carry their own cost for food.

LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

Orient & Dance Theater is an open creative space and the volunteer is welcome to create new classes or workshops. They can learn to work in an international team, managing themselves in a new culture and improve language skills.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

We have had many volunteers during the years, some of whom decided to stay and continue living in Palestine. The experiences we have had with volunteers from different countries have been amazing. Because this is volunteering for all of us we wish to have people who can enjoy life, be responsible and have good energy with them and enjoy what they put their time into.

Ramallah is a good starting point for travels all around Palestine. Arabic classes and lessons in national dance dabkeh or the instrument oud are also available.
